Unilever Dry Spray VoxBox

As a member of Influenster, on occasion I get a VoxBox which is a box of products to try.  Yesterday I received a bottle of Unilever Dry Spray Deodorant to try,  I am looking forward to trying it out.

I did note that the "Fresh Energy" scent was very pleasant. I don't like really strong scented deodorants, so that was a big plus!

I posted an unboxing video this morning on youtube.  Forgive the quality. I m rather new on making these videos.

If you would like to become a member of Influenster and receive products like this for yourself, please follow this link to join.

I receive  these products complimentary for testing purposes.

50...the fresh start

I'm 50 the hell did that happen? I had a mini meltdown at one point because I was really missing my mom. The realization that she wouldn't be calling to wish me a happy birthday or share some story from my childhood overwhelmed me and I had a good long cry in the shower.

The day improved of course, but she was on my mind heavily.  

I have had a crazy year....I had a hard time earlier in the year and handled things wrong. I wasn't myself and I made some bad choices which, unfortunately cost me some people I cared about who are no longer in my life.  Our actions have  consequences and while I cannot change the things that happened,  I can move forward and learn from those choices.  I may never again have contact with the people I hurt and pushed away but I can hope they in time will forgive me.  Grief affects us in many ways and sometimes it's just there...a shadow in an otherwise beautiful day and sometimes it's like a fog that consumes you and makes it impossible to see clearly.

Having someone to talk to has really helped.  Maybe I should have done it sooner.  That is something I will never know but at least I started talking and then listening....not just to others but to myself  and I feel like I am on the right path.

I know they will probably never see this but if they do, I just want to say I am sorry.  I truly am.

Happy Veteran's Day

What is a Veteran?

A "Veteran" = whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve, is someone who once wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including his life".


To all my fellow veterans, to my husband, all my friends and family who served, I salute you.  Thank you for your sacrifices..thank you for signing that "blank check" and being the special someone that you are.  God bless you all, and God Bless America.
